I never experienced such a moment at any of the shows I attended. Not even at your beloved performance of Gloria in Richmond. (I thought you got puked on at that show?)

My epiphany came when I heard 1/20/68 for the very first time...

It's boring, but my epiphany came from live dead - and I had to listen to it a few times too. It was the summer before college when I sort of had nothing to do and was feeling weird about life. I was deeply into some pretty wild jazz, but I found live dead in my basement and after the third or so time of giving it a spin I realized that I had stopped whatever I was doing and was just listening to it for like 30 minutes straight.

Yeah, got some bile on the footwear, but that was all forgotten when the heavens opened.

And you bring up a good point. This "moment" is by no means restricted to live performances, it can just as easily be brought on through a recording as it did for you. I know there are quite a few folks in these parts who have never seen the boys live, but share an equal passion for the music as those who saw them over 200 times. This is a music that truly has the power to come through on any media.
